CHEAP TUMMY FAT REDUCTION: For Those Tied to their Desk Work

It's something like this!

Few people on earth aren't bothered by their tummies. Most likely, you are among those who are. You want to trim down your tummy size to flat level but you find it too expensive to do--let alone find time for it because your job or business ties you to your desk work all day.

So, why not try this cheap tummy fat reduction strategy?

When you're sitting at your desk, take tummy exercise breaks. You simply pull your knees up as high as you can to your chest, one at a time. Do it slowly but make sure the knee go as high as it can. Then hold it at that height for 10 seconds. Do 10 repetitions each knee. Inhale as you lift the knee and exhale as you hold it for 10 seconds. You may place each hand at each side of the rear end of your chair for support.

It's something like the image above. Do this several times each day--preferably 4 times in the morning and 4 times in the afternoon. You don't have to leave your desk to do this and you won't have to buy special equipment. It's really for cheap tummy fat reduction.

Then supplement it with this weight loss diet. Eat this for breakfast:
  1. 2 boiled eggs
  2. A good size of sweet potato
  3. Oatmeal with some milk and brown sugar
  4. 2 bananas
  5. Soya curd (taho) or soya milk
The boiled eggs you should eat only two times a week. Make sure you consult your doctor about this weight loss diet.



Then, for lunch, eat just enough of everything while limiting your rice to a cup. For supper, eat no rice.

If this is okay with you, I'd add a little of push-ups if I were you. If you're a newbie to exercise, do 15 to 20 push-ups early in the morning and in the afternoon.When I was  an employee, I did push-ups early mornings, after lunch at about 2 pm at the office, and another one late in the afternoon when I got home.

This cheap tummy fat reduction program is really "cheap"--it's cheap health and fitness with middle income budget. Do this diligently for 6 months and see the result.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
